There is a dispute between the Kejriwal government of Delhi and the central government regarding the home delivery of ration. Union Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad has targeted the Kejriwal government regarding this. He has said that Arvind Kejriwal is talking about food in every household. He could not deliver oxygen, he could not deliver medicine from the Mohalla clinic. Every household food is also a jumla. Delhi government is under the control of the ration mafia. 34 states and union territories of the country implemented the One Nation One Ration Card. Only three states Assam, West Bengal and Delhi did not implement it. Arvind Kejriwal why did you not implement the One Nation One Ration Card in Delhi, what is your problem?
Ravi Shankar Prasad, while targeting the Kejriwal government, further said that this home delivery looks very good to see, but if you go inside it a little, then it will be understood how many dives of scam will be taken in it. You (Arvind Kejriwal) send your proposal or you will play the game on the food grains that go to the Government of India. Why authentication of PoS machines has not started in Delhi's ration shops from April 2018 till now? Arvind Kejriwal ji does not worry about the SC-ST category, does not even worry about the migrant laborers, does not even worry about the eligibility of the poor.
Ravi Shankar Prasad also said that the Government of India gives wheat at Rs 2 per kg, rice at Rs 3 per kg across the country. Under the Pradhan Mantri Garib Kalyan Anna Yojana, like last year, this time also free ration is being given to the poor till November. Rice costs Rs 37 per kg and wheat costs Rs 27 per kg. The Government of India gives food grains to the states for distribution through ration shops by giving subsidies. The Government of India spends about Rs 2 lakh crore annually in this. One Nation, One Ration Card is very important scheme started by the Government of India. One Nation, One Ration Card scheme is running in 34 states and union territories of the country. So far 28 crore portable transactions have been done on it.
